Dr. Melissa Creary, assistant professor of Health Management and Policy at the University of Michigan School of Public Health, was accepted into a visiting research residency at the Brocher Foundation in Geneva, Switzerland. This competitive two-month residency program hosts researchers from all over the world who dedicate their work to ethical, legal and social aspects of medical development and public health policies.
During her time in Switzerland this spring, Dr. Creary will work on manuscripts to further her health equity research on biocultural citizenship and bounded justice focusing on populations in Brazil. She also plans to connect with colleagues at the World Health Organization who work on similar issues, particularly sickle cell disease.
